You Make the Call: Josh Jones’ Focus Week One

  5 months ago     365 Views     1 Comment  

It's time for another Packer Nation head-to-head poll. One of the most exciting players that the Packers drafted this year is Josh Jones. With the exit of Micah Hyde there was a need for a versatile guy on the Packers' defense that could play multiple positions and crash the box if necessary. Jones checks all those boxes. At 6'1 5/8" and 220 pounds with 3.4 speed, Jones is the total package. As a "replacement for Micah" though, he won't have the veteran savvy so his response time may be a little slower right out of the gate. So all this…

When fans in Packer Nation hear the name Kentrell Brice, they inevitably think of a hard hitter. Though 27 tackles and 4 assists will not jump off the page at anyone, Brice's goal-line thud against the Falcons in week 8 and in particular his origami fold-up of Cole Beasley in the Divisional round of the playoffs last year definitely leap out.

But there is a flip side to the coin of the hard hitting safety and with youngsters like Josh Jones presumably taking…

The Journey Begins in a Month

Exactly one month from the start of training camp I think there is as much excitement for this Packers team as I have seen in a long time. The offense, in particular, makes everyone in Packer Nation slide a little closer to the edge of their seat. The addition of Bennett and Kendricks, along with Evans have taken away the fear of veteran exits and enhanced them with important additions. Along with that, the returning players, and the rookies that the Packers drafted at the running back and the wide receiver positions should bode well for the offense. But there…
